Delonix regia is a species of flowering plant in the bean family Fabaceae, subfamily Caesalpinioideae native to Madagascar. It is noted for its fern-like leaves and flamboyant display of orange-red flowers over summer. In many tropical parts of the world, it is grown as an ornamental tree and in English, it is given the name royal poincianaflamboyantflame of the forest, or flame tree.

Delonix regia is endemic to Madagascar’s dry deciduous forests but has been introduced into tropical and sub-tropical regions worldwide. In the wild, it is endangered, but it is widely cultivated elsewhere and is regarded as naturalised in many of the locations where it is grown.

The Flame tree requires a tropical or near-tropical climate but can tolerate drought and salty conditions. It prefers an open, free-draining sandy or loamy soil enriched with organic matter. The tree does not like heavy or clay soils and flowers more profusely when kept slightly dry.

The Flame tree is planted in Mediterranean parts of Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, Israel, Jordan and Cyprus. Furthermore though Asia, the Indian subcontinent and Australia.
